Les Mills - BODYCOMBAT™
BODYCOMBAT™ is the EMPOWERING cardio workout where you are TOTALLY UNLEASHED! This fiercely energetic program is inspired by martial arts and draws from a wide array of disciplines such as karate, boxing, taekwondo, tai chi and muay thai. Supported by driving music and powerful role model instructors, you strike, punch, kick and kata your way through calories to superior cardio fitness.
You'll begin BODYCOMBAT™ by learning all the moves that will be used throughout the class and warming up your body and mind for the battle ahead. You will visualize your opponent and unleash into a series of fight combinations. The focus is on speed, power and endurance. There will be time to recover as you prepare for each phase, with a final fight for your life that will seal the deal on your fitness objectives! Finally, you will take to the floor and cap off your workout with some strength training. Then it's payback time as you stretch out your hard-worked muscles after the fight.
